'Crisis talks' for Hurley and Warne

The couple's relationship is thought to be on the rocks and Shane recently confirmed they were "sorting through" some issues.
Now the Daily Mirror has reported that the cricketer is flying back from Australia for "last-ditch crisis talks" with model and actress Liz.
The sports star was spotted at Melbourne airport with his three children and told reporters: "We're going to have a good time - we're going to be away for ages."
A source said: "Shane still desperately loves Elizabeth and wants to make a go of things. The long distance wasn't helping so he decided to book plane tickets, and make the effort to see her. Their work schedules of late haven't been compatible so he is looking forward to spending some proper time with her."
Shane, 44, and Liz, 48, will apparently also discuss plans for their luxurious mansion in Herefordshire, which they bought together.
The insider said: "If they do separate for good, they will be especially gutted about the house, which was their pride and joy.
"As well as opening up a Shane Warne Academy for talented young Aussie and Brit bowlers, Shane and Liz had planned to create a cricket ground and facilities for an annual celebrity charity fundraiser.
"They want to get all this tied up and, at the very least, remain friends so that this can still become a regular fixture."
